entries online and results become available
Sunday 5th FebruaryPuddledub Winter Workers Show - Howe EC, Ladybank, Fife
It is quite a few years since we had a Winter Workers show at Howe, and we do need a good entry to make it financially viable, so I hope we will see a lot of you there! Graham Barclay will be building for us so expect a lovely, inviting course ideal for babies and getting us back going again after the winter break.
Sunday 19th FebruaryPuddledub Winter Inhand & Ridden Show - Howe EC, Ladybank, Fife
We may be starting fairly early in the year, but the beauty of Howe is that apart from lorry or trailer to the indoor warm up, you won't be subject to vagaries of the weather at all, with indoor warm up, collecting ring and ring. In addition there is a great cafe too.
Saturday 25th February
Puddledub Winter Inhand & Ridden Show - Cabin EC, Inverurie, Aberdeenshire
With the sad loss of Fountain, our happy Aberdeenshire "home" for many years, we hope our northern competitors will continue to support us at Cabin. With a large indoor arena and a huge outdoor one, we had a fabulous show there last year on a glorious sunny day ... let's hope the weather is good to us again
Saturday 4th March
Puddledub Winter Inhand & Ridden Show - Champfleurie EC, Bathgate, West Lothian
Last year the weather was so glorious that use the lovely big outdoor for our ring, but comforting to know we have the indoor as an option too
Saturday 18th March
Puddledub Winter Inhand & Ridden Show - Muirmill EC, Kilmarnock, Ayrshire
Once again we cover the west of the country with one of our two annual trips to Muirmill. Lovely indoor arena with great cafe overlooking the ring so a great venue to bring all the kids to compete regardless of the weather
Saturday 25th March
Puddledub Winter Workers Show - Champfleurie EC, Bathgate, West Lothian
Our first show held at this very central venue was held in a vile, wet, gale force storm but we hope for better weather running 6 weeks later this year. . Indoor and very large outdoor arenas, with great cafe and viewing over the indoor. The last minute weather forecast will dictate whether we compete or work in indoors
Saturday 1st April
Puddledub Winter Workers Show - Muirmill EC, Kilmarnock, Ayrshire
Although small, there is indoor working in and collecting area in addition to the lovely main indoor arena and a great cafe with panoramic viewing of the indoor, so we are no April Fools!!
